Characters

Main Heroes

  • Captain America / Peter Parker: Once an shy and nerdy freelance photographer working for Daily Bugle for the care of his ill aunt May, Peter Parker had his life ruined when trying to take pictures of Crimson Spider / Flash Thompson, who attacked him in a Super Soldier Serum facility in the blind belief that Peter was making him look bad to the citizens out of jealousy due to their past history. On the attack, Peter exposed himself to the facility's chemicals and infused with samples of the Super Soldier Serum which once turned Steve Rogers into Captain America. Right after J. Jonah Jameson (who showed no regard of Peter's condition) fired him for failing to obtain the pictures and his aunt and Uncle Ben were killed during a riot which Crimson Spider should (but did not) stop, Peter joined Pym Industries as the CEO Hank Pym's favorite prodigy and, using nanotech particles and resources provided by Pym, developed an Super-Soldier armor and a weapon projector (which grants him a sword, a shield, a non-lethal gun) composed of Vibranium and, united with his android sidekick Redwing, battles crime and inspires hope and humility on citizens as Captain America. He then became the leader of the Avengers.
    • Appearance: The same as in the comics (along with blue eyes). His Captain America armor is a modified version of the one seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron (but with white eye lenses).
  • Captain Marvel / Mary Jane Watson: Peter's long time childhood friend and love interest, Mary Jane had her life changed during the pursuit of her career as a astrophysicist and her search for answers about her long-lost father Phillip when she learned of her father's true identity as the Kree captain Mar-Vell (Mary Jane was at the time Mar-Vell's fourth child). After witnessing her father's death by the hands of Crimson Spider, Mary Jane had her Kree powers awakened by the energies transferred from her father to his children (with Mary Jane manifesting the powers of increased strength, speed and stamina, energy projection and flight). After being given with high tech resources with the Kree scientists who were loyal to Mar-Vell, Mary Jane took on the moniker of Captain Marvel and went on a journey to protect the galaxy while she sensed that her other siblings were looking for her. Later, after battling crime alongside Captain America (whom she recognized as Peter Parker, who likewise recognized her identity), Mary Jane also married him and had four children with him for the next eight years later. She is also the second-in command of the Avengers.
    • Appearance: The same as in the comics. Her Captain Marvel attire consists of a one piece leotard suit (similar to the black gold suit worn by Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel, but colored after the current suit) with a mask which attaches to her face while leaving only her mouth and hair visible.
  • Quasar / Gayle Watson / Phyla-Vell Neramani: One of Mary Jane's half-siblings and the first child of Mar-Vell with Shi'ar princess Lilandra. After her father was killed by Crimson Spider, her Kree metabolism granted her Superhuman strength, flight, energy construct projection and absorption and cosmic awareness. She was the first of the siblings to find her brothers, whom she later worked alongside with to find their sister Mary Jane. Later on, she decided to live with her siblings on Earth (where she adopted the identity of Gayle Watson) and joined the Avengers. One month after her sister's wedding, Gayle married Peter's cousin Jack and had two twin children.
  • Hulkling / Theodore "Teddy" Altman / Dorrek VIII: One of Mary Jane's half-siblings and the second child of Mar-Vell with Skrull princess Anelle. After his father was killed by Crimson Spider, his abilities (including shape-shifting, Superhuman strength and stamina, flight and fire breathing) manifested and he started using them to protect the citizens of Earth as Hulkling.
    • Appearance: The same as in the original comics.
  • Star-Lord / Kevin Quill: One of Mary Jane's half-siblings and the third child of Mar-Vell with Earth Inhuman Meredith.

He later took the moniker of Star-Lord.
    • Appearance: A younger variant of Chris Pratt's interpretation of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Black Panther / Felicia Parker-Reilly: Peter's cousin and Mary Jane's best friend and a zoologist who specializes in wild cats. Shortly after her parents Ben and May died in a hospital which was destroyed by a riot which Crimson Spider was too late to stop, Felicia and Peter parted ways until they overcame their grief. In her trip to Africa, Felicia gained enhanced strength by ingesting the heart-shaped herb, an African plant powered by Vibranium, becoming her country's "Black Panther". Shortly after the Avengers were banded together following Thanos' defeat, Felicia started a relationship with Mary Jane's brother Theodore Altman and, two months after Peter and Mary Jane's wedding, married him and had a daughter.

After being accidentally infused with a Hydra serum created by Red Skull which would grant his subjects with Crimson Spider's duplicated powers, Teresa gained spider-like attributes and became the Black Widow.

During medical attention, his arm was then replaced by a bionic arm made of Phalanx technology with Cryogenic functions) and Jack was infused with a small dose of Peter's blood sample. Inspired by Peter's dedication as Captain America, Jack took on an S.H.I.E.L.D. advanced armor and equipment and adopted the moniker Winter Soldier.

She previously dated Flash Thompson (though she also felt discomfort of his constant bullying of Peter in high-school and also shows a great hatred for Crimson Spider) until she broke up with him after learning he was Crimson Spider while scolding him for having made most of Peter's life miserable (and mostly for being indirectly responsible for the deaths of Uncle Ben and Aunt May), which led a remorseful Thompson to quit being Crimson Spider for eight years. Later, during Truman Marsh's ambitions of capturing Groot, Sally took on a bird-based flight suit of both Stark and Pym Technology and became Songbird, on which she acted as a mole within the Thunderbolts to help the Avengers.

Like Peter Parker in the original timelines, he became a crime-fighting Spider-based vigilante after being bitten by a radioactive spider. However, he displays more violent and arrogant methods (showing no hesitation in severely injuring or killing criminals and scolding at or intimidating citizens who do not see him as a hero) which oftenly ruin even innocent people's lives and takes no responsibility of his actions, which only create more enemies than friends for himself. Thompson also owns (and lives in) a saloon which once belonged to his father.

    • Appearance: Based on Lee Pace's character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • The Black Ripper / J. Jonah Jameson: The arrogant greedy head of Daily Bugle who worships Crimson Spider as a hero regardless of his violent acts (which Jameson only sees as "effective action"). Much like Crimson Spider, Jameson only cares about money and takes no dear responsibility of his actions. Jameson also happened to be an homophobic (as shown in some newspapers he wrote by himself, on which see saw Homosexuality and LGBTs as a "plague"). Consequently, he was exposed by Captain America and as the Black Ripper, an masked criminal and serial killer who previously assaulted and butchered prostitutes and homosexual women (including America Chavez' mothers Amalia and Elena), and arrested. He was then replaced by Robbie and Betty, who begun to report about Crimson Spider's dark nature and primarily about the true heroes. He was later broken out of his cell by his son John Jameson (who is also on the run from the police after Life Foundation's downfall), but they ended up both killed by Venom.

  • Venom / Eddie Brock: One of Thompson's best (and only) friends along with Harry Osborn. He was once Peter's replacement as freelance photographer working for Daily Bugle until he was fired when his actions towards dr. Marla Madison resulted in her being fired from Life Foundations and divorcing from her husband J. Jonah Jameson (whom she accused of sending Brock to spy on her work). During his removal, he later asked for help from Crimson Spider, who (refusing to lose Jameson's faith in him) greedily refused, leading Brock to share Peter Parker's dislike for Crimson Spider and vow revenge.
